Cranes and Cube
Cranes and Cube is a multifaceted new media art project that aims to map the architectural, material, and cultural history of the radically changing sites and topographies of Saudi Arabia. The project locates discernable overlaps between religiosity and the market economy by representing the visual culture of ostentatious buildings and excesses in construction practices. These modes of the built environment stand in a mismatched juxtaposition with the lived experiences of South Asian and African pilgrims and migrant laborers who construct, service, and inhabit these cities.
